Tun Dr. Mahathir in Taiping

Former Prime Minister and UMNO President Tun Dr. Mahathir Mohamad will be in Taiping this Sunday, 13 May 2007. He will be at Taiping Golf Resort, speaking at an event organized by UMNO Youth International and NGO Affairs Bureau. The “Kollokium Mengantara-bangsakan Melayu” event starts at 11am. UMNO Youth members and some selected institute of higher learning students from the Northern States are expected to attend. It is an invitations only event, due to the limited space available.

This is Tun Dr. Mahathir’s second speech at an UMNO affair this year. His son, Dato’ Mukhriz Mahathir is the UMNO Youth Exco in charge for International and NGO Affairs Bureau. The UMNO Youth International and NGO Affairs Bureau have been is the most active bureau amongst the other bureau within UMNO Youth. Their involvements in various humanitarian programs, especially through Peace Malaysia have been tremendous and highly regarded. Last August, they managed to organise a debate with the British High Commissioner on the Israeli’s illegal war in Lebanon. However, their same invitation to the American Ambassador was ignored.

Taiping Golf Resort is located at Jalan Bukit Jana, Kamunting, Taiping, Perak. Resort living accommodations are available for a reasonable rate in the 18 hole golf course.
